Crater High School is a public high school in Central Point, Oregon, United States.

Small School Initiative[edit]

Beginning in the 2007-2008 school year, a program called the Small School Initiative was established in Crater after a monetary grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It essentially split Crater into four smaller schools, each with its own principal and staff members. These schools are the Crater Academy of Natural Sciences (CANS), Crater Renaissance Academy (CRA), Crater School of Business, Innovation & Science (BIS), and Crater Academy of Health and Public Services (CAHPS). CANS was closed and now there are only 3 schools at Crater.

Academics[edit]

In 1983, Crater High School was honored in the Blue Ribbon Schools Program, the highest honor a school can receive in the United States.[3] Crater Students normally come from Hanby Middle School and Scenic Middle School.
